Its my dad's birthday today..!!!!! Happy B'day appa.. :-)
What can i say about this man who thinks he never has to exercise 'cos he bunked college everyday for two years and played cricket. Anything i say about him would be less. My life is really great and more fun 'cos of him. He makes me laugh so much that i forget he's my dad and feel i'm with a friend. Another reason for feeling that way is 'cos he behaves like a twenty year old. He never really talks about his age. Thinks and believes he is one among my friends. He's never been over protective about me and my sister. Has always let us take decisions on our own and never went into "I said so" arguments when our decisions have not been good.
Another quality i love about him is never talking, thinking and going back to the past. He never really talks about the future as well. Just lives the day as it comes. I've never really seen him being tensed about his or anyone's future. Even when mum n i were scared about my tenth grade results, worried if i'll even get into a college, he just told us not to worry 'cos there has to be a college in this world who'll be ready to take me. He's always been this way about everything. Man who says there is a solution to every problem.
He knows exactly how to wake me up every morning. Switch on the television, play Bollywood songs as loud as possible, switch off the fan and my day has begun.. at which point we get into an argument about his habit of switching off the fan. If TV plays our favorite dance number, we forget everything and dance to entertain mum.
He is someone who's understood my lack of interest in cooking and has never asked me to enter the kitchen. This one reason is enough for me to love this man forever and ever.
I love you so much dad. You've never heard me say this out loud 'cos you know i'm not the type who say it. But this post here is my way of showing love, respect and how proud i am, have been and will always be to call myself your daughter.
